A cherry treeHey. Did ya notice? Spring is here.

And, wow, is there a lot going on this week, especially this weekend. Looks like the weather will be nice too – sunny and 70°.

This weekend is a biggie. A-Day, the annual agricultural fair put on by students at Delaware Valley College begins today and continues through the weekend. See their website for a full schedule. A great activity for the kids.

Shad Fest 2013 takes place in Lambertville Saturday and Sunday. Lots of fun food vendors and crafts, and shad delicacies.

Lettuce from Milk House Farm Market

Farmers Markets. The Ottsville Farmers Market at Linden Hill Gardens begins their season this afternoon at 4 pm and goes until 8 pm. If you haven’t been to this great market, do yourself a favor and put it on your calendar. Great food and vendors, and always something new going on each week. The Doylestown Farmers Market opened last Saturday morning for the season and the Wrightstown Farmers Market will have one more “mini-market” on Saturday. They will begin their regular season next Saturday, May 4.

Beer fans? McCoole’s in Quakertown is holding their bi-annual Beer Festival this Saturday from 12 – 9 pm. Also, looking ahead, Saturday, May 11 is the 3rd Annual Washington Crossing Brewfest. Tickets are available here.

Or do you prefer wine? Old York Cellars in Ringoes, NJ is celebrating the season with a Vine to Wine Spring Festival all weekend including live music, arts and crafts vendors, food and treats, kids activities, hey rides, bee tours, and, of course, wine. Shady Brook Farm in Yardley and (next Friday) The Market at Del Val begin their Friday evening Wine Concert Series that goes all summer long. Music and local wine, and a great way to wind down on Fridays.

DFC-LL2013-FL-72Local food. Check out Local Live 2013 at Puck in Doylestown. The Doylestown Food Co-op is holding this party full of local music, kids’ activities and locally-sourced food prepared by chef Michael Kanter. Proceeds benefit the Doylestown Food Co-op which is working to open a bricks-and-mortar store, selling locally grown and produced food. For more information on membership, click here.

Community meals. So much this weekend! I’ll put in a plug for my local firehouse in Wycombe, the Lingohocken Fire Company, which is hosting their annual Pancake Breakfast this Sunday from 8 am to 1 pm and celebrating their 100th anniversary this year. Yours truly will be waiting on tables too. Wycombe is just 1 mile down Township Line Road from the intersection on Route 413 where the Pineville Tavern sits. Haycock Fire Company is also having a breakfast this Sunday. On Saturday, the Upper Black Eddy Fire Company is putting on a Pennsylvania Dutch Dinner and next week, on Thursday, the Solebury United Methodist Church will be serving up their annual Ham Supper.

chickens on pastureChickens. Ever thought about raising a few chickens in your backyard? (I bet you didn’t know that it’s legal to do that in Doylestown Borough). The Bucks County Foodshed Alliance is presenting the program Raising Chickens in Your Backyard at the Bryn Gweled Homestead Community Center in Southhampton, Wednesday at 6:30 pm. Visit some homes in this intentional community where residents are raising birds and then attend a question and answer session at their community center. For more information, go to the BCFA website.
